Generally quiet weather for the rest of the week into the early portion of the weekend. Weak energy could bring clouds, breezes and maybe a snow shower or two up high. Pattern change coming for next week!
Boring weather for the rest of this week. Weak systems clipping northern Utah will bring a few clouds and breezes. Even a chance for a snow showers or two in the high elevations. All attention is now squarely on the pattern change for next week.
Starting on Sunday, we should see the trough approach the area. The main trough looks to slide down the California coast on Sunday and eject eastward into Arizona on Monday and Tuesday. This could limit amounts for Utah, however, we should still see energy push through the region during the Sunday night – Monday night timeframe. At this point, we are too far out to know any details as to how strong this will be. You can see the NAEFS ensembles are all over the place, but almost all show us getting at least some precipitation:
The general synoptic pattern would suggest more storms will continue later next week. At this point, there just isn’t enough model agreement to get into any details, but I think it’s safe to say that we haven’t seen a pattern like this for several weeks. Right now, it looks like California is going to get battered. How much of that makes it to Utah is still an unknown. As always, we’ll know more in the coming days, but this is definitely good news for those of us who have been patiently waiting for storms to return.
